Constantine schools awarded grant

Constantine Public Schools Superintendent Steve Wilson said the district has landed a grant in excess of $1.5 million.

The funding is courtesy of a grant from the Robert and Ellen Thompson Foundation.

Wilson said he and school staff members in April had begun to look for opportunities to support their goal of one-to-one devices for all students.

The grant will fully fund an instructional transformation initiative from the ground up, Wilson said.

The funds are earmarked specifically for student and teaching devices, as well as to help support the creation of specialty computer labs, and equipment for the industrial arts and robotics program.

The Robert and Ellen Thompson Foundation was started by the Thompsons, who were the former owners of the Thompson-McCully Co., Michigan’s largest asphalt-paving company.
